The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
The personal letters and accounts really take you back in time, good that both victims and state agents (all the way to the neighborhood snitch) hey a voice. Good for teenagers to understand the process from building the wall to unification

After calming experience of Jewish memorial, we witnessed magnificence of Brandenburg Tor. There was one word that described the gate "empowering". The gate have a feeling of victory. The feeling of invincibility exuded from the architecture.
In front of the gate there was a street that one could freely stroll. Beautiful. You can recognise the window which Michael Jackson almost...
We didn't know what to expect, but this memorial is very thought-provoking. At first glance it just looks like a bunch of concrete blocks. But once you start walking through it, you realize it means so much more and it is very complex and difficult to understand. It makes you think and remember. Truly a humbling experience.
"Pergamon Museum" is certainly the most important museum at Berlin's awesome "Museum Island". It is partially closed, since 2014, for major renovations scheduled to end in 2025. Last May, I was able to visit the fabulous "Ishtar Gate of Babylon", the ancient "Market Gate from Miletus" and the beautiful "Aleppo Room", among other significative treasures. The entry fee costs E$12...
Had a most gorgeous mushroom ravioli with a perfectly chosen by the maître de Sicilian wine ( Chardonnay and native grape: dry minerals- superb!). Excellent bread with balsamic and olive oil. Look out for the great photo of waiters all looking out the window. Apparently taken at a hotel in St Moritz and the maître de is second from the...
We were seeking somewhere for a good, fresh baguette and light lunch. This place was perfect.
My sandwich was tasty - Serrano ham! And my boyfriends vegetable pasta was good. Quick and easy food, ideal for a tasty, healthy lunch. Not many places like this in Berlin. Good selection and offering of fresh food.
Staff were also friendly and helpful!
This was some of the best avocado toast I’ve ever had. The textural elements, seasoning and quality of ingredients was spot on! The coffee was good but not the best I’ve had. It’s a cool atmosphere with large tables that encourage communal seating.

What a weekend! Stayed at Gorki for the first time and had a great time! The rooms were decorated with a ridiculous amount of detail and the service was incredible. Whenever we needed something or had a question Florian helped us out and had some great tips for the city. Besides the apartment itself, the location is unbeatable. You take...
I have staid at numerous hotels over the last few years including 5 starts but this one takes them all. The stuff is super friendly and extremely helpful, the hotel is quiet, clean, the rooms are great (no carpets,finally, yey!!) - everything was just perfect.
We booked the upgraded Comfort Plus room, with a garden view. The hotel and the room are very nicely designed with a young modern feel. The room is very spacious and clean. We loved the free soft drinks minibar - very nice touch! I wish more hotels offered that... There was also a free smart phone with internet access in...
I cannot say enough about the great experience we had at the Regent Berlin. The location is fantastic, right next to beautiful Gendarmenmarkt square. The area is not overrun with tourists, but is very central.
Our room was very spacious, as was the bathroom, everything is immaculate. The room was very quiet, you would never know you are in a...
We spent two nights here in July in a Management suite. Excellent facilities - spacious, clean and comfortable. Reasonably equipped kitchenette. Good bathroom - only slight criticism; the position of the shower it the middle of the bath made getting in and out a bit awkward- but not really a big issue.
The TV: many of the international channels did...
